NYSF Australia 2012 - Happy New Year!

Sun, 2012-01-01 13:50 -- Jessie MacAlpine

Two days ago, we went to a beautiful beach called Smith's Beach and the Nobbies at Phillips Island. We ate a delicious dinner of fish and chips (which was actually shark) in a small beach town called Cowes. We were then fortunate enough to see the Penguin Parade, when the Little Penguins make their march onto land after a long day of fishing off the coast of Phillip's Island.

Yesterday (New Years Eve), we ate lunch at Walhalla and then swam in Cooper's Creek. After that we joined a small gathering of friends and past NYSFers to celebrate the new year.

Today, we are resting before the very busy forum tomorrow.

Canada is represented at the 2012 Australian National Youth Science Forum (NYSF) by three students selected at the 2011 Canada-Wide Science Fair: Jessie MacAlpine of Woodstock, ON, Moriah Harvey of Nipigon, ON, and Shaun MacDonald of Tulita, NT.
